About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

'Owl' be there for you...

Afternoon peeps and another beautiful day here in West Yorkshire. Hope this lasts for a while yet.

Here's a quicky following the Less Is More Challenge, 'masculine'. I brayered a rainbow effect across the bottom corner using Encore 'ultimate metallic' and then overstamped with the Crafty Individuals Owl.

I decided to pop the letter 'O' inbetween the 2 buttons.

I'm also entering this into the Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is 'going postal'.

Hope you like it and here are the links, x




  1. Love CAS card and completely unisex. XOXO Zoe

  2. This is a charming card, I think it would stand very well without the streak of colour across the corner. It was a little difficult to spot the exact colours on my monitor!
    I like the addition of the buttons.
    I hope you'll join us again next time!
